New updates are being added at the bottom of this story…….
Original story (published on March 21, 2023) follows:
The introduction of the Notes feature is Instagram’s new approach that lets users communicate their ideas and keep up with their friends. These are basically brief posts that can be up to 60 characters long.
However, when it was first announced, it drew a lot of criticism from a section of users. People also felt that this feature is quite annoying and distracting.
Instagram ‘Notes’ not showing up or disappeared
And now, several Instagram users (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10) have recently been complaining that the ‘notes’ feature has vanished from the app. This has left them wondering what really happened to this functionality.
@instagram i little have enough storage but your app keeps on getting rid of my notes and change my messages to something weird and its really annoying
Is IG gone take the notes down or what? They keep taking it down and putting it back up 🥴
There are a number of inconsistencies as well as uncertainties with the feature right now. For some, it keeps randomly disappearing and then reappearing (1,2,3,4,5), while others have not even gotten it yet (1,2,3,4,5).
However, as part of the testing process, users may suddenly gain or lose the functionality. It is also possible that some people might never get it, before the complete release.
So, until Instagram rolls out the complete and stable feature, this situation will likely continue to persist. Hopefully, the notes feature gets released as soon as possible.
We’ll let you know when it does, so stick around for updates.
